An eighth man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a fatal stabbing at a Coventry nightclub, police said.

Daniel Kirkwood was found outside the Society Club in Tower Street soon after 02:00 GMT on Sunday.

A 25-year-old man was detained in Birmingham at about 22:50 GMT on Monday, West Midlands Police said.

Three other men are being questioned over the 18-year-old's death. Four others have been released on bail.

Mr Kirkwood was found with a stab wound to the neck and died later in hospital.

On Tuesday, a magistrate granted detectives another 36 hours to question the three men, aged 18, 22 and 24, police said.

Another 18-year-old man suffered a stab wound to the back, while a 17-year-old boy was also slashed across the arm with a knife. Their injuries are not life threatening.
